The hip hinge movement involves a creasing at the hips and the buttocks being pushed backwards and driven forwards with a flat strong back. All hip hinge exercises will heavily target the buttocks (glute muscles), lower back and usually the hamstring muscles too.
The deadlift is a classic example of a hip hinge movement and the kettlebell swing offers a more dynamic version.
